Theory, hypothesis are used in non-technical contexts to mean an untested idea or opinion. A theory in technical use is a more or less verified or established explanation accounting for known facts or phenomena: the theory of relativity. A hypothesis is a conjecture put forth as a possible explanation of phenomena or relations, which serves as a basis of argument or experimentation to reach the truth: This idea is only a hypothesis.
The bolded actually defines scientific theory, while the next sentence is what uneducated think a theory is. There is a big difference between the two. The scientific method exists for a reason, basically to stop people from just making shit up. Some mook didn't just say "Hey, evolution is the answer and that's that!" Its a long process. That's why people disregard the bible, cause it's actually a book written by a mook(s) that says "Hey, creationism is the answer and that's that!"
